New for Autumn 2018

For fun and fitness or to develop technique and skills

Boys Ballet Beginners (9 years+)
This is a specialist non-syllabus class for boys, which focuses on male ballet technique and choreography. Taught by a male RAD teacher, the classes develop core strength, musicality and presentation skills. Promoting fitness and well-being, Boys Ballet provides a core technique that will enhance performance in all other styles of dance, from jazz and tap to contemporary and street dance

Ballet for Beginners (13– 17-year-olds)
Suitable for students with little or no previous experience of ballet, these non-syllabus classes introduce the basics of ballet technique with an emphasis on fun and enjoyment. The study of ballet improves posture, general health and coordination whilst giving the opportunity to express and communicate through music and movement. The classes are taught by a highly experienced RAD teacher and accompanied by a pianist and are a perfect preparation for RAD adult ballet or Graded syllabus classes.

Discovering Repertoire
Discovering Repertoire is a classical ballet performance programme, an innovative new concept in training and assessment from the RAD. Uniquely, the programme includes well-known classical repertoire, meaning students will learn and dance choreography that they have seen on stage, set to music that they know and love. Level 2 is equivalent to Grade 5/Intermediate Foundation, and in this level, students will learn modified variations from Coppélia and Giselle. Students are able to take an exam in this when certain criteria have been reached if required.

Jazz
These classes develop jazz dance technique, including preparation for turning, leaps and isolation movements. Students will work to improve flexibility and strength and learn choreography in various styles including lyrical, commercial and musical theatre.
